[erlang-questions] External sorting for large files in Erlang

Hi,

I'm looking for something similar to this, but in Erlang:
http://code.google.com/p/externalsortinginjava/

I found an old post suggesting file_sorter:
http://www.erlang.org/doc/man/file_sorter.html
But file_sorter seems to only  work on binary files.
In my cas, I need something more flexible.

What about controlling the Unix sort command from Erlang?

Any hints, ideas, suggestions, code?

Regards,
Zabrane
